These two points are mutually exclusive.

United and Air NZ offer status matching but that won't help you with Virgin. If Virgin decide to status match your silver you will get two free lounge passes but unlikely to do this for anything below gold. You could also get the Velocity platinum Amex which includes two free passes. Wednesday is probably a bit too tight to arrange any of the above in any case.

You should have received two lounge passes for achieving silver with qantas. You can access the qantas club at Melbourne and also on the return. I bike all the status match programs are matching people with gold or higher, still won't do u much good in terms of lounge access with virgin.

Virgin is not in STAR but for STAR Alliance there is an arrangement whereby Singapore Krisflyer Gold get access to Virgin lounges. Best option is to use the Melbourne airport cafe facilities and there are a few decent options around.

Haha Brassy. Definitely no Star Alliance Gold access to Virgin lounges prior to Virgin Australia flights.

I am a Qantas Platinum FF and will be flying with Lufthansa for 4 flights as part of a Business Class RTW deal (US-Europe-UK-Eur-Sin). Is it worth trying to get status matching from a Star Alliance airline?
Thanks for any advice
Hi Guest, join in the discussion on
Did I see something about QF and Star Alliance Status matching?
